Saturday 18 April will see the iconic Mount Pavilion transformed into a unique Fleetwood inspired installation created from the town?s past, present and future, and marking the end of resident artist Liz Postlethwaite?s time in the space.
Throughout March and April Liz has been out and about in Fleetwood speaking to residents and visitors alike to find out their memories, thoughts and feelings about the place they inhabit in order to create her final artwork inside The Mount Pavilion.
During her residency Liz has visited Fleetwood Museum inside the old Custom House on Queen?s Terrace to explore the town?s rich heritage. She has spoken to the volunteers at the Willow Garden Project about their work supporting people with mental or physical health needs through horticulture and taken in the views from Rossall Point Observation Tower ? plus more besides to build up a picture of Fleetwood.
Liz Postlethwaite said:
?Since the beginning of March I have been lucky enough to use The Mount Pavilion in Fleetwood as a base to explore this lovely coastal town. From visiting groups and going on walks, to collecting shells on the beach and meeting dogs and their owners in the park, I have been trying to delve under the surface to get a feel for what makes Fleetwood’s heart beat in 2015.?
Kerenza McClarnan, Creative Engagement Manager at LeftCoast, said:
?Having Liz based in Fleetwood has been a delight and it has been great to follow her blog to keep up to date with where she has been and who she has met. We?re really looking forward to seeing the installation take over The Mount Pavilion and see how Fleetwood?s story comes out.?
The Meet Me at The Mount Installation will be at The Mount Pavilion on Saturday 18 April from 1-4pm. Everyone is welcome to come along, see the artwork and meet Liz as her residency draws to a close.
